PC 017: How Coaches Can Work Less (And Achieve More)

As coaches, we want to help people and make a difference in their lives. We also love the lifestyle of coaching though — being able to do what we want, when we want to do it.

Unfortunately though, as coaching practices go, so does the opportunity to get caught up in too much work. And even though we love the work we do, this can take us away from non-work elements of our lives, such as family, friends, and health.

Lisa Mallis works with coaches to help them achieve more while working less. On this episode of ProCoach Podcast, we talk about how you can make this happen in your coaching business…
